A man my husband works with also has a farm with some sheep, a while back he gave me a big bag of uncleaned raw wool. Let me tell you that stuff is fun to clean and brush out when you have no idea what your doing, NOT! I cleaned and carded the wool myself whith dog brushes.  I think I might try and find a place that will clean it for me. Anyway I told this man since he gave me this wool for free I would make him something. And this is what I made, I would love help naming him I think I will take him to his new owner tomorrow. thanks for looking, comments welcome.

I think he should be called Franklin  Cheesy

What a cute little creature.

Awww.  He's adorable.  He should be called Shep.  I don't know why.  That's just what popped into my head.

Great job.

thanks guys for your nice comments, I was really excited about him because he was my first attempt I am now making a little bear. They are very addictive.

When I saw it I thought of the sheep being alive and making a sound, like "boop boop."

I have no idea, it should be "baa baa" right?

Pfft it's so adorable and it messed my mind I guess. I would love to see more! Oh, and it'd be nice if there's one that's reaaaalllly big so we can hug it. It just so cuddly!

Do you like butter, Mister giant-whatever?

Thanks,  I would love to make a really big one but this little guy was about six hours to make I can't imagine making a big one, LOL! It was a gift for the man that gave me the wool and he loved it, he was very impressed.
